View Presentation


The brief for this project called for a contemporary garden that was elegant in its expression, provided opportunities for art and sculptural works, and contained a number of different areas for various social and other activities, including for young and boisterous children.

TCL's design for the garden extends the recent renovation at the rear of the house and starts a conversation with the original stone villa at the front of the property.

The garden unfolds as a series of interrelated courts and layered spaces, with the planting being predominately from a hardy Mediterranean palette in order to thrive in Adelaide's climate with minimal watering and maintenance.
